Change Radius-server host to Radius server

Today I was configuring a Cisco router ( ISR2 ) 3945 and on the moment that I configured the Radius settings for the VPN login. Did i get a message ( warning ) “The CLI will be deprecated soon ‘radius-server host <IP address>’ Please move to ‘radius server <name>’ CLI.”

Well okay first was it quiet simple command and now I’ve to change it in something else.

Go to the CLI and remove the old radius-server host < IP address> string.

Continue to configure the new setup.

Radius server < name of your radius server > 
address ipv4 < ip address >
key < the key you use to connect to you radius server >

Final output.

radius server server01
 address ipv4 10.0.4.1 auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646
 key 7 <scrambled key>

  1. When you reboot the router, does it show some lines in the log like this?
    000008: *Mar 1 00:01:44.689 UTC: %RADIUS-4-NOSERVNAME: Warning: Server is not defined.
    000009: *Mar 1 00:01:44.695 UTC: %RADIUS-4-NOSERVNAME: Warning: Server is not defined.

    The login works via AAA/Radius but just after the boot these warnings are displayed. I configured the Radius servers with the new method.

    • This is quiet simple. The radius policy hasn’t been active yet at the time of the message. NO issue actually. when you have a message like %RADIUS-3-NOSERVERS than there is an issue.

      So if radius works no problem.

  2. Thank you for your reply. Cisco confirmed this also. It is a bug at the moment. The Radius group is defined before the definition of the Radius servers, hence the warning… But no impact on the functionality :-)
